Suspended Design

Impressive feats of engineering are on display at Poly Corporation Headquarters in Beijing, where an eight-story floating structure juts through the largest cable-net glass wall in the world. Housing the Poly Museum, the “hanging lantern” is suspended from the building’s atrium by means of four parallel strand bridge cables, aided by The Rocker. The crystalline, patterned glass of the museum structure is pleated to increase its light-reflecting and refracting qualities. Learn more

This is how the solar system is actually moving as it traverses the galaxy.

So beAutiful

Wait

Yeah it’s not circular as you’ve been taught. It does revolve around the sun, but like every other star, the sun travels, and pulls us too. Fih-boe-nah-chi

Just makes it all the more amazing that this all came to exist, being flung through space.

The essential medium of architecture is space, air,
rather than substance,
matter which contains the emptiness.

Architecture is the construction of charged voids,
frames of opportunity,
fields of possibility.

I am interested in space, more than meaning,
in the architecture of movement and flux,
of time and event,
rather than object and monument.

I am interested in the emptiness that material constructs.

I am interested in the invisible.

Buildings are less objects than interludes in the field of fluid
and continuous space.

In this world of proliferation of image,
the reality of experience and the need for authenticity increases.

I am interested in the tactile and sensual,
in the haptic
over the visual,
in communication through the direct experience rather than figural images which rely on memory for communication.

I am interested in the actual space of experience,
which allows new meanings to accumulate through use in this
unprecedented
transcultural
and transgenerational
condition.
